    Norway: Children of Indian couple taken away due to "inappropriate Behaviour"
    .
    An Indian couple have had their children taken away by Norwegian social workers because they were feeding them with their hands and sleeping in the same bed as them.Anurup and Sagarika Bhattacharya lost custody of their three-year-old son and one-year-old daughter eight months ago after authorities branded their behaviour inappropriate.The drastic measure led to intervention from the Indian government who contacted Norwegian authorities in an a desperate attempt to return the children. Parents Anurup, right and his wife Sagarika Bhattacharya had their three-year-old son, pictured, and one-year-old daughter taken away Norwegian Child Protection Services removed the youngsters from their home in May, 2011, leaving their parents horrified with the outcome of the report.
    .
    Father Anurup told Indian television channel NDTV: 'They told me ''why are you sleeping with the children in the same bed?'’. '(I told them) this is also a purely cultural issue. We never leave the children in another room and say goodnight to them.'
    .
    Anurup added: 'Feeding a child with the hand is normal in Indian tradition and when the mother is feeding with a spoon there could be phases when she was overfeeding the child.
    .
    'They said it was force feeding. These are basically cultural differences.' Authorities complained that Anurup, seen here with his son, should not have been sleeping in the same bed as his eldest child Their one-year-old daughter is currently staying with a separate family to her brother's temporary carers Mrs Bhattacharya said: 'My son was sleeping with my husband. They said he should sleep separately from your son.'The parents have been told that they can only see their children twice a year, for an hour during each visit until the kids turn 18 when they will no longer be bound by the current restrictions under current Norwegian law.Despite the Indian government's intervention, Norwegian officials are refusing to meet the request for any further explanation. Authorities complained that mother Sagarika should not have been feeding her children with her hands. Norway's Child Protective Service has come under much scrutiny in the past for excessive behaviour in their handling of child cruelty.Lawyer Svein Kjetil Lode Svendsen said: 'There has been a report in UN in 2005 which criticized Norway for taking too many children in public care. 'The amount was 12,500 children and Norway is a small country.'
    .
    With the Bhattacharyas' visas set to expire in March, they have revealed that they will be forced to stay against their will until the return of their infants.

    Very interesting.

    Would India be justified if India remove children from western parents, because they keep their children in a different room, it being cruelty to the children by encouraging insecurity from birth!

    The Chinese should not be feeding their children with chopsticks!

    Weird people inhabit the world and have no clue of culture.

    Uncultured and unwashed even in undertaking ablutions!

    Can more people living in the "West" confirm if that so called "Norweign Culture" is followed in their countries as well or it's Norway(one of the so called most-civilized countries) having this unique "culture"?

    In west living with your parents after a certain age is looked down as inappropriate while it will be praised as joint family system in India.

    Countries which enact these laws need to have personnel versed in the cultural habits of different nationalities.

    I cannot begin to describe the trauma the mother will be going through at this moment and the damage it will do to the child as it grows without parents...fcuking idiots.

    That is typical Norweighian socialist welfare state BS. Child protection services are overactive and hyper-reactive. If the children are Indian citizens, then GoI MEA can ask them to be repatriated, If they are Norweighian citizens, then the situation is more complex and has to be taken up by human rights groups.

    The last time I was in Britain, teachers there urged the Government to bring back cane in schools. Such was the lies sprouted by school children that they were abused or physically punished by their school teachers, that many teachers lost their jobs and semblance to face the society - then as seen to be a children beater.

    The child welfare laws are good to an extent, while preventing child abuses. But it should not over-ride the parents authority to discipline kids once a while.

    But seriously, when did feeding children with our own hands become a crime? I guess, when in Rome, be a Roman!

    Indian stand is that parents look after the children and then the children look after the parents in the same house setting. I think it is a better thing than leaving parents and not be there in there old age.

    I bet even in west children sleep with there parents...there must be another angle to this.
